Producer: RPM Productions
CD Price: $15.00
Review:

Veteran children's artist Chip Richter performs his original tracks ("Let's Dance," "Thirty-Two Things at Once," the title track and others), along with "Garden Song" by Dave Mallet and "Branching Out" by John Gorka, and songs by classic pop icons Joni Mitchel ("Big Yellow Taxi," tailored here as "Big Yellow Bus"), George Harrison ("Here Comes the Sun") and Dylan's "Forever Young." It's a harmonious mix, but the standouts are Richter's gentle, roots-rock-style, real-life-inspired songs about nature, dreams and affirmation.
